opti-ME*
opti-ME* is a month-long exhibition and event series bringing together a selection of creative workers to interrogate the role of the artist, both as model for radical change and as self-promotional strategist. Exploring different types of artistic agency and modes of (identity) production, invited collaborators will occupy a transformed Auto Italia space, using it as an experimental testing-ground for new work and proposals, and questioning what "being artist" might mean as their skills and production methods become increasingly embedded across other industries.
